Peshastin area residents got what they wanted this week when the Chelan County Port District granted their request for public access onto the Port-owned mill site property. Steve Keene with the Peshastin Community Council Tells KOHO’s Steve Hair the Port Commissioners’ action is welcome news. The new Port policy allows non-motorized public access onto the property between December 1st and March 31st. The Port could suspend access if damage to the property occurs. A new master plan is being developed by the Port for the old lumber mill site to map out its future economic development potential.
